The History of Making Paper Beads
Making paper beads is a traditional craft that goes back, in England at least, as far as the Victorian age. The women of the house would gather to make beads from scraps of wallpaper that were rolled on knitting needles. They would then polish the beads with bees wax and string them on to long pieces of yarn.
For many paper bead makers the creating process and products have remained much the same. Others have put their own spin on the process to create a great variation of designs and styles.
Margabeada Girl still uses the same basics in creating paper beads but also enjoys designing beautiful new styles to keep the process fresh, fashionable and fun!
